    If I could afford to, I'd move back to Ramona in a heartbeat. I also wouldn't mind living in Julian. Otherwise, it would be Arizona or Hawaii.........anywhere it's warm and sunny more often than not.

    I didnt really want beans in the chili. I just remarked about how, in BIG letters, it said "NO BEANS". So, I made a comment.

    Thankfully, we've finally gotten a few decent Mexican restaurants up here which are owned and operated by real Mexicans who know how to cook real Mexican food. It took long enough, though..........for the first ten years or so I thought I'd never again get to chow down on shredded chicken enchiladas made with homemade tortillas and covered with spicy mole sauce!

    Good BBQ is another thing, though---personally, I'd rather grill at home. But if I'm going out and BBQ is what I want, Tony Roma's works for me.

    I'll second that statement, back home we BBQ'd everything and all was good. Here all you get is pulled pork with a bottle of vinegar sauce, some BBQ.:no: :icon_shrug: :icon_huh: :bolt2:

    I know it would put you smack dab in enemy territory, but Boulder & Denver, CO (and pretty much all the other towns in that region of the rocky mountains) are freaking beautiful. If you have any affinity for snow sports it's worth considering.
